Posts about fliCHr

The nickname “fliCHr” is a play on the name of photo-sharing service Flickr and the abbreviation for Confederatio Helvetica. It was used as a tag and keyword between 2006 and around 2009 amongst the Swiss members of Flickr, who regularly met for social events at the peak of the service’s popularity.

I took this inside a toilet cubicle at the Bar Rouge in Basle last weekend. They’re on the thirtieth floor of the Messeturm and one wall is a glass window, which overlooks the city.

Toilets on the thirtieth floor of the Messeturm face outwards and one wall is a glass window, which overlooks the city. You can just see someone in the green window, who’s on the loo!
